ANNUAL CONVENTION

______________________________________________________________________________

The MIPA Board of Directors and the MIPA staff have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 MIPA Annual Convention and the 2020 District Meetings. The board discussed these decisions in great detail, and they decided to cancel due to the rising numbers related with Covid-19.

The MIPA board and staff have given a lot of thought into how we can provide our members the benefit they deserve at the same time practicing safe standards. We will continue to give our members the benefits, including affordable CE opportunities. You will be hearing more about this in early August.

To our valued sponsors and exhibitors, we are also looking into ways for you to highlight your company during the months when CE Sessions are offered online.

If you have already made room reservations, The Grand will automatically cancel those.  If you do not receive cancellation notice from them, please call to follow-up.  Of course, if you like you can use that weekend and enjoy The Grand for yourself! (Make sure to let The Grand know.)

If you have any questions, please contact Robert Dozier by email at rh.dozier@mipa.ms or Amy Wilson at awilson@mipa.ms or call 601-957-0007.
